“David’s extensive background in human resources has benefited the company well during this period of intensive growth and challenges,” said Gregg Tewksbury, President and CEO of NHMB. “He’s worked tirelessly to align compensation and benefit plans as our company brought banks together and recently added to our financial services affiliate though an acquisition. David’s focus on our talent and workplace culture benefits all of us as he advocates for employee well-being in everything he does.”
Cronin joined Meredith Village Savings Bank in 2008 as Vice President and Human Resources Officer. In 2009, he was promoted to Senior Vice President and Human Resources Officer and again promoted in 2014 as Human Resources Director for New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp.

New Hampshire Mutual Bancorp, a shared services organization, was formed in 2013 when two New Hampshire-based community banks, Meredith Village Savings Bank and Merrimack County Savings Bank, formally affiliated – the first relationship of its kind in the state. This strategic partnership has positioned the banks to leverage each other’s strengths as they work together to advance a shared vision of maintaining and enhancing community banking standards and values. MillRiver Wealth Management joined as a third affiliate in 2015, combining the financial advisory divisions of MVSB and the Merrimack. Savings Bank of Walpole joined NHMB in 2018. In 2020, MillRiver Wealth Management affiliated with the New Hampshire Trust Company and Savings Bank of Walpole Wealth Management to become NHTrust. NHMB combined assets total more than $2.8 billion. For more information, visit nhmutual.com.
